Rock, not true. V Rod riders are a rare breed. My Vrod is my 6th Harley and by far the BEST! I work at a HD dealer and Vrods come in for tires and oil changes. Just because they dont break like the air-cooled POS doesnt make it a Harley. BTW The Vrod was Willie G`s baby. This was his invention to capture the younger rider, well it worked on me as well. Im almost 50. I love the performance right out of the box, and it didnt cost me 5K to make it run like it would of a air-cooled vtwin. Next step is a stage 2 kit with 2 into 1. Still a fraction of the cost, more reliable and all modern technology! Ride on Bro!

Most air heads don't understand that nobody cared whether they were cool after they got out of high school.

On September 13th, a two-vehicle injury accident on Route 33 near Zanesfield closed the highway for several hours.

The Marysville Post of the State Highway Patrol responded to a motorcycle/SUV crash on 33 just east of County Road 10 around 12:30 a.m.

Troopers report that a westbound 2011 Harley-Davidson VRod driven by Ballesteros rear-ended a '99 Honda CR-V operated by April Smith, 59, of 10235 State Route 638, Belle Center.

The motorcycle went off the right side of the road and overturned.

The CR-V traveled across the median, overturned, and came to rest upright in the southeast lanes of 33.

Ballesteros, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported to Grant Medical Center by MedFlight.

Smith was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital by Robinaugh EMS.

Her passenger, Jill Woods, 59, of 109 East Main Street, Belle Center, was flown to Grant Medical Center by CareFlight.

The westbound lanes and one southeast lane of 33 were closed for three hours."

Some where I saw a photo of a guy who rear ended a semi trailer hard enough to total the bike. he also got his head stuck in the trailer and was draged 7 miles. Lived.

I point to the DoD sticker on the side of my bike and tell 'em "I've been to combat, I ride what I focking want to." Besides most of those idiots are RUBs buying their $30K CVO with extra chrome option bike to carry them in luxury only when the temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees. Most of the time you see them in their Prius going back and forth to their 9-5 white collar job.

What I really don't understand about the CVO crowd is. How can you buy an expensive bike and just let it sit in the garage. I meet guys that boast that they put 2K a year on their bike. ROFLMAO !!!! I do admit I really hate the cold and rain but I do ride about 1K a week in good weather.

Nicely put!

SvFiat's squid link... No squids in my group... IF I ride with minimal protection, THEN it must be a four mile round to pick up my prescription...

No, it won't hurt less if I crash close to home, but I love riding by the dozen or so HD et al cruisers/tourers parked curbside at a nearby storefront. This is a little strip less than 1/4 mile long with a side street traffic light that cuts it in half. Those airheads need to get a good look at me and my F(ake HD) as I slowly go by! My M109 friend tells me he knows it's my bike when I'm near his house because of the distinct V&H sound. They hear me coming at least 20 seconds before turning the corner to come into view... If they call me a squid, I gotta call them haters as they see me on my Functionally And Kinetically Enhanced HD VRSCF!
